No special console,,,1 sci slot, that is bugs downside,,higher turn rate, 5 tac slots = upside, its not OP
Yes the 1 sci slot is a downside... that is it though.

There is a reason that every experienced Escort pilot that played prior to the bug... all made SURE to get one. Even if they had to drop 400-500 mil EC to do it. Its not worth 400-500m because its only good... or even a bit better. People don't want to admit it but the more I think on it the more I have to say ya its OP. I know its not around anymore so 400-500k seems right... but lets be honest even when it was dropping like mad out of doff packs it never really dipped under 200 mil for more then a few hours perhaps at most.

Every good escort pilot switched to it even if they had to pull 24h stints fixing the exchange to do it. Lots of terrible escort pilots swapped to it as well... which is why it likely doesn't seem all that op to some people. Of course if you know what your doing you can make any ship work.... but the fact that so many people that do KNOW how the game works sold there kidneys for it if they had to says it all.
When the messenger comes to appropriate your profits ... kill the messenger.
